Glenis Marie Boudreau (Stenger), born January 11, 1965 passed peacefully January 27, 2020 after a courageous battle with cancer. Through the many treatments, scans and appointments Glenis remained positive, upbeat and unwavering in her fight often reassuring others that she would beat the odds.

Glenis adored Brian who she met 29 years ago through mutual friends and they were rarely apart. She was an avid gardener and a master at tending to her incredible roses. Known for her kindness, generosity and selflessness, she was loved by so many people, probably more than she ever could imagine. A bright light gone too soon and big shoes to fill.
Glenis had a great love of music, and anyone who knew her understood her deep devotion to her favorite band, the Goo Goo Dolls and how she would never pass up a chance to see them, or an opportunity to travel to her favorite vacation destination – Las Vegas. She was lucky at the slots, often prompting friends and family to rub her head for luck!
